WP Super Cache, a popular website performance plugin is now joining Jetpack. In the last 15 years, the plugin has improved the performance of over 2 million websites.
Donncha Ó Caoimh, the man behind the WP Super Cache plugin is now handing it over to a new team. He said Jetpack didn’t buy the plugin from him, it’s just going to the Jetpack team. This transition will allow Jetpack to offer better solutions quicker than Ó Caoimh as he was single-handedly managing multiple projects while Jetpack has a dedicated team to work on WP Super Cache.
Initially, Jetpack will be working on updating the WP Super Cache UI and also working on compatibility with other performance features.
Jetpack Performance Lead, Mark George said,” We’re excited to start working on WP Super Cache. Our goal is to create an experience where anyone can make their site extremely fast without being an expert. We want to help make sure that WP Super Cache remains a reliable and easy option for that.”
Meanwhile, Donncha Ó Caoimh, Developer at Automattic said, “WP Super Cache is a great plugin for handling caching needs, but there is an opportunity to make it more useful for a wider variety of sites. I have been working on the plugin for 15 years, and it’s time to hand it over to a new team. Jetpack will be able to put much more effort and time into the plugin than I ever could, and I’m excited to see what becomes of it.”
